Algeria is one of the least explored places on earth by tourists, not because it is not worth exploring, but rather because there is little information about the region available to tourists. Algeria has so many places of interest that it cannot be ignored at all. Just like the prehistoric rock art of Tassili n’Ajje and the botanical gardens and impressive palaces of Algiers. Algeria’s ancient cities and desert region make it unique as well.
The fact that Algeria is located in North Africa attracts many tourists. Visitors looking for picturesque beaches should visit the northern country. Some common beach resorts are Les Andalouses, Canastel, Mostaganem and Ain El Turk. To study Algeria’s tribal and cultural aspects, you can visit places like the Tassili N’Ajjer and Hoggar regions, near the town of Tamanrasset. These regions are unique on their own and because of this, many people consider Algeria as a tourist destination.
You should also visit the Monument des Martyrs, which was created to remember the struggles and sacrifices of its people in the Algerian war for independence. The monument consists of the Eternal Flame shelter and palm leaves which contain statues of soldiers symbolizing the struggles of Algerian people during the war.
One of the UNESCO world Heritage Sites in Algeria is Al Qal’a of Beni Hammad, the place once the first capital of the Hammadid Empire. Did you know Algeria is the second largest country in Africa? The Atlas Mountains divide it into two halves. The city of Annaba is also one of the major tourist attractions in Algeria, and one of the major industrial centres of Algeria. One of the most visited places in Algeria is Constantine.
Other significant monuments of interest are Our Lady of Africa (Algiers), New Mosque (Algiers), Ottoman Hanafi Mosque (Algiers), Roman Ruins (Timgad), Roman Arch of Trajan (Timgad), Central Sahara (Assekrem), Santa Cruz castle (Oran) and Hoggar mountains (Sahara desert) and Blezma National Park in Batna province, home to more than 447 flora species and 309 fauna species.
Algeria’s top restaurants are Le Taj Mahal, Restaurant Chez Sauveur and Auberge Du Moulin. Those who like shopping can buy local carpets, jewellery, crafted woods, and can visit street markets for artisan handicrafts. But Friday is not a good day for shopping because most shops are closed on Fridays, so keep that in mind while you are there. Algeria always has olives and dates, local spices.
“Algeria Tourist Destination” yes think about it and definitely visit while you never know what you are missing.
